MTI-Hungary Today 2020.10.29.

A mural evoking Berlin has been painted in German-Hungarian cooperation on a firewall in Budapest to mark the 30th anniversary of the reunification of Germany.

The mural at downtown Akácfa Street 27 depicts three figures at the Berlin Wall in clothes painted with the colours of the German flag. It shows the international Peace Sign and landmark buildings of Berlin, the project organisers said in a statement.
